Iaito Kiku with 71cms Blade | Iaito

Iaito 菊 (Kiku) with Light Steel blade (850 grams). The 71 cm blade is ideal for practitioners from 165cm to 170cm.


The iaitos of the BUSHIDEN brand are swords designed specifically for the practice of Iaido. They have been developed with the collaboration of teachers and practitioners of Iaido and Aikido. Particular attention has been paid to the weight (850 to 890 g) and the point of balance (13 to 15 cm from the tsuba). The result is a light and well-balanced iaito, it is available in 5 lengths (69cm, 71cm, 73cm, 75cm, 77cm). Comfort is neat with ito cotton braiding on the tsuka.


The Bushiden iaito are also suitable for the practice of Kendo no Kata


The kata (also called kendo no kata or nihon kendo kata) are a synthesis of different ancient schools. Created in 1912 by a committee of experts, they consist of ten codified combat sequences between two partners. They are practiced with wooden or metal swords. Each of the partners has a very specific role: uchidachi is the initiator of the fight, he is the aggressor, while shidachi is the one who responds to the aggression and wins the fight.


An iaitō (居合刀) is a Japanese training sword (not sharp), which imitates the katana and allows the study of Iaido, aikido and ninjutsu.
